Charlottetown to Summerside race / cruise

Fire up your engines or raise your sails on the morning of July 26th and join the flotilla of power and sail boats departing the Charlottetown harbour.

As you pass through the narrows of the Charlottetown harbour, look to your right and you will see the remains of the historic site of Fort Amherst.

Sail under the Confederation Bridge, the longest free-standing bridge over Ice-covered waters in the world!

Fortunately you won’t have to worry about ice this time of year. Prince Edward Island has the warmest waters north of the Carolinas thanks to the Gulf Stream effect.

What conditions can you expect? Wind is typically consistent around this time of year and fog is quite rare.

Tie up in the protected shelter of the Summerside Yacht Club and enjoy the party on land with fresh island seafood, live music, and the famous Summerside hospitality.

Summerside to Charlottetown race / cruise

Set sail with us on July 27th, as we depart the Summerside Yacht Club to join the bustling flotilla of power and sailboats headed for CYC.

Take in the majestic sight of the MacCallum’s Point Lighthouse and breakwater on your port side. Cruising down the south shore of PEI and under the Confederation Bridge, enjoy views of red sand cliffs and lush green grass as you make way towards St. Peters Island.

Entering the final stretch through the mouth of the Charlottetown harbour, you can look forward to a BBQ at the Charlottetown Yacht Club as boats arrive. Trade in your deck shoes for dancing shoes as the Salt & Sol Restaurant hosts live music, and an abundance of cold beverages to go around.
